While the mountains afar are still covered with snow, peach flowers are already in full blossom in Nyingchi prefecture, Tibet autonomous region.
Nyingchi, or Linzhi in Chinese, lies in the southeast part of Tibet Autonomous Region. Located near the lower reaches of Yarlung Zangbo River, it is blessed with a semi-humid climate and fascinating scenery. With a large number of river valleys and alpine gorges, Nyingchi is also called the "Switzerland of Tibet". [China.org.cn]
